Bastion of the Christian world, the Vatican is one of the most highly sought-after tourist destinations in Europe. It’s no surprise that planning a trip to the city is at the top of any traveler’s list. However, not being careful or not taking the time to do some research can seriously hurt your chances of having a good time once you get there. Here’s what you can do to prevent that from happening:
Wear comfortable shoes
You’ll be on your feet a lot so it’s best to go for shoes you’ll be comfortable in all day. Going up and down the stairs or walking around in heels isn’t ideal. Also, you might trip and end up with a swollen ankle for the rest of your trip. It’ll slow you down, and that’s the last thing you want to happen. So be read by packing the right footwear.
Never go during the summer
If you don’t want to be a part of the contingent that crowds the streets of Rome every summer, don’t relish the thought of having to elbow your way through a mob just to take a picture of the Coliseum or have a table for lunch, then you’ll want to skip travel in June, July and August.
Research about restaurants
You’d think being in Rome would be enough to make any dish a scrumptious culinary delight. Not true. If you want a great dining experience every time, do your research. This helps you find the restaurants that offer you the best in terms of taste and prices. You could also ask locals for tips.
Hire a private tour
If you don’t want to waste time on research and simply want the convenience of going on a trip, hire a private tour so you’ll have someone else handle to the details for you. Choose from different Vatican private tours for the one that fits your schedule and budget. For more information contact Italy Luxury Tours, or call us at 1 888 959 7108.
